Creativity has been hailed as the driving force and most important skill of the 21st century – a power to be taught, understood, and deployed on all levels of society. In the humanities, however, truly understanding creativity has all but disappeared. Instead, insights into creativity emerge from fields such as neurology and theoretical physics, psychology and educational sciences. Using other perspectives has allowed us to deepen our understanding of the concept of creativity. This volume brings together the ideas of Spinoza, Goethe, Emerson, Benjamin, Deleuze, Baudrillard, Wittgenstein, and many others to open up new perspectives on enforcing creativity in society today.
